PHOTO OF THE MONTH

Until a diagnosis is given with an x ray, dogs will continue to be taken out from breeding, many unnecessarily. There are multiple non-genetic causes that can result in abnormal joint development, but unfortunately the present screening methods do not take account of these. The Pupscan Research Project is working hard with Veterinary and Human Orthopaedic Specialists and Geneticists to bring awareness to breeders and Kennel Clubs in the hope that things will change and in the future breeders will be able to make informed choices based on a Diagnosis rather than just a Score.

About Pupscan?

The Pupscan Project was established in early 2015 to research the factors leading to abnormal hip/elbow development in dogs. The project aims to separate predominantly genetic causes from the many acquired conditions that damage joints. Using the most modern diagnostic Ultrasound technology and a precise measurement analysis of the whole hip, a non-invasive imaging technique has been developed to evaluate puppies within the early months of life. This will establish the presence or absence of normal healthy joint development.
